For those were not aware, we are at war. We have been at war for over 3 decades with Jihadist Islamists, who declared war on us on many occasions beginning in 1980 with the Beirut barracks bombing, and formalized in … Continue reading
Republican legislators in Wisconsin introduced a bill Thursday that would make it harder to strip public schools of race-based nicknames and allow schools already ordered to drop such monikers to keep them. The proposal stems from a Milwaukee-area school district’s … Continue reading
Defending the Indefensible By Julianne Ortman, Republican Candidate for the U.S. Senate It couldn’t be worse if it had been intentional. The negative economic costs for Obamacare are piling up: • Respected employers like UPS and the University of Virginia … Continue reading
Fox News reports on efforts from Obama’s DOJ to halt Louisiana’s school voucher program, and the push-back efforts of Gov. Jindal and other state officials in response (bolded emphasis added by me): Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is fighting back against the … Continue reading
What compelling reason, then, would the government have for regulating same-sex relationships? Based on the government’s purpose for sanctioning civil marriage, frankly there is none. Homosexual relationships have nothing to do with the purpose for which civil marriage is enacted; therefore, homosexual relationships are not entitled to the benefits of marriage Continue reading
However, any educated person has to acknowledge that every civilization has had some form of marriage between a man and a woman. Why is this, one might ask? How often do governments ask you to register your relationship with your grandmother? Your best friends? Your nieces, nephews and grandchildren? Why is this one relationship between a man and a woman so significant. Is love so important? Hardly. No government really cares to register your relationship, whatever it is, if it has nothing to do with anything but feelings. No, marriage is not about love. Marriage is about the one thing that distinguishes the relationship between a man and a woman that separates that relationship from any other. That is children.
Yes, the purpose of marriage is not the love, itself, but the consequences of heterosexual love…the jealousies, angers, affections and, yes, ultimately, the children that invariably result from heterosexual love. Marriage registers the children, determines their heredity and bloodlines, determines their inheritance from their family and determines, for as long as the records exist, from where this individual came. Marriage records the comings and goings of a civilization and, for that reason, is the foundation stone of that civilization. Destroy marriage, and you destroy that civilization, much as if the mortar that holds the bricks of your house is not securely set, it will erode away and your house will eventually come down.

From Townhall important enough so I printed this in entirety, and hope they understand. 1) People who want to change sexes should be treated by a psychologist, not deformed through surgery, given hormone treatments, and falsely told that they can change … Continue reading
I always hesitate to post a gay-marriage article, because of the fact that so much of this debate is driven by prejudice, and so little by actual fact. What has disturbed me, of late, is the number of Conservatives who, … Continue reading
Fox News reports: The Baltimore city government is on a path to financial ruin and must enact major reforms to stave off bankruptcy, according to a 10-year forecast the city commissioned from an outside firm. Is anyone surprised? Is their … Continue reading

Jed Babbit gives a very good description, IMO, of why we failed in Afghanistan, and why we will continuously fail, until we understand how to win a counterinsurgency war. The person who best understood modern insurgency warfare was David Galula, a … Continue reading
I am quite certain that all of you gentle readers missed the story of the year, so far…the meeting of the Progressive Elite to plan how they are going to outline their agenda for the year. Matthew Continetti expresses my own … Continue reading
From the New York Times, we have a juicy little administration faux-pas: Oopsie! In what has to be one of the least-shocking outcomes of Barack Obama’s Libyan adventure, the New York Times reports that his administration secretly gave approval of … Continue reading
I guess I shall be updating this blog on a far more regular basis. I have been highly negligent, partially because most of the people who came here while I was posting regularly came to reference John Galt’s speech, and … Continue reading
Every nation has a history, and every nation’s history has an era that defines that nation; when the people of that nation think of themselves, that era, that moment of glory is how they identify themselves as a member of … Continue reading
There is a stretch of land, in Western Oklahoma called the ‘Staked Planes,” or, in the original, Plano Estacado. It was supposedly named by the Spanish Explorer, Cortez, because it was so incredibly flat that he had to mark his … Continue reading
I have been arguing the issue against gay marriage for a long time. I have nothing against gays, I have nothing against gays living together, raising children, having a wonderful life…but it is my firm opinion that marriage is for … Continue reading
Two stories which, so far, encompass a campaign where one man can’t possibly win, and the other man seems hell bent on losing: Obama’s Goose is Cooked Obama needed a filet mignon in the June employment report. Instead he got … Continue reading
